satisfied with their service? president obama spoke to our next guest yesterday from the situation room about how to eliminate any bureaucratic roadblocks that delay the power restoration effort. here now is tom coombs. you're regulated at the local, state, and federal level. the prices you charge are regulated. the terms of your service are regulated. your construction plans are regulated. your investments are regulated. do all of those facts when i put them together with year after year we see americans living for a whole week without power, are they connected? >> well, i think the u.s. utility industry invests some $20 billion a year in the transition thing. we do have to get approval from regulators, but the regulators have been very understanding and the need to keep reliable service, which is issue number one, but you can build the best electric system, which we have, but something like hurricane sandy comes along with extended winds that knock down power lines, with title surges that go into the tunnels in new york, with major two feet of snow out in west virginia. and it's going
. the immediate aftermath of the storm, president obama declared a large swath of the east coast as a major disaster area. neighborhoods brought to their knees by what we think of as mother nature's dispassion nat, impersonal force. they blow back the covers on the structural inequities and reveal the life and death consequences of the inequalities, slamming directly into the heart of one of the biggest metropolises. sandy racked the focus in a way that let's us see the differences. 21% of this city lives in poverty. on the island of manhattan, the wealthiest fifth make 40 times of the poorest fifth. a gap only surpassed by a few developing nations. this is a disaster we live with each and every day, the gulf between the rich and poor in this city was only exacerbated by the great reception. all of us are still living through a disaster brought on by the immediate devastation from the financial crash and housing crises. we have been living in a state of disaster since the financial storm racked our nation to its structural core. a housing cyclone that hollowed out more homes that hurricane
obama and governor romney. what is their message for these final three days? >> victor, it's interesting, both of them have the same message. change. they're saying it in different ways. you're hearing a lot about change as they crisscross the campaign trail in the final days. both were talking about the message yesterday, last night in ohio. take a listen. >> the president says that, you know, it has to be this way. i say it has to change. he says, he's got excuses for us. i say, in fact, no, i have a plan for us. >> he says that we need to settle for where we are with this high unemployment and low wage growth. i say this, americans don't settle. >> now, governor romney is a very talented salesman. and in this campaign he tried as hard as he can to repackage these bad ideas and offer them up as change. he says something, now suddenly he's the candidate of change. but, we know what change looks like. and what he's trying to sell, that's not it. >> you're going to hear a lot more of that between now and tuesday, election day, of course. as both candidates reach out to that very small sli

is over before there is either an obama administration for a second time or a new mitt romney administration. and we'll have a very brief period for a very polarized congress to try to come up with some sort of a solution to the fiscal cliff. now i think both sides want it to happen, however, there is, there has been some stubbornness on the part of both sides on some very key issues and the fiscal cliff would represent a departure in the gdp. we could actually end up seeing gdp growth, closer to zero and that's going to show up in jobs numbers. jenna: that is good context for us because whoever wins the election next week on tuesday that same congress is returning and that same congress will have to deal with some very big problems we have ahead for us in the country over next couple months. great to see you again. >> thanks very much for having me. jon: well, recovery from superstorm sandy has an additional component now. the ongoing search for gasoline in new york and new jersey. patience also in short supply across that region as drivers who actually can find a gas station
are now in custody. >>> on the road again, president obama and mitt romney return to the campaign trail today with just five days left until election day. the president hits three battleground states, wisconsin, colorado, nevada. the white house says the president will be briefed on details of the federal response to sandy, a day after he witnessed the devastation and promised to cut through all the red tape. mitt romney makes several campaign stops today in the swing state of virginia. >>> and there is more evidence at just how close this presidential race really is. a "wall street journal"/nbc news/marist poll of three bat e battleground state shows president obama with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a two-point lead in new hampshire. just five days left. >> it is so interesting to watch this as we get to that deadline. it's so fascinating. john, thank you very much. >>> back to our "starting point" this morning, it's day three of that fallout from superstorm sandy. millions of people without power in their homes. and as john mentioned
in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the unemployment rate when the president took office. last month, he's back to where he started. february, 2009, that's the stimulus. then the unemployment rate rise up to 10% in october, 2009 as the stimulus money was being deployed. stubbornly high unemployment. then drifting lower much of this year. we can look at job creation and you can see how jobs have been added now since the end of 2010 consistently, but not robustly
, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
. >>> president obama back on the campaign trail, but still following efforts of superstorm sandy, spending wednesday afternoon with new jersey governor chris christie. the two saw devastated areas from the air on marine one and met with people in the oceanside city, both trying to lift the spirits of residents left to pick up the pieces and pledging to work together. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. and on the phone conversation with his him, was able to witness it today personally. >> the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> white house correspondent brianna keilar joins us from green bay, wisconsin, where the president will make his first campaign stop since the storm. brianna, will the president -- of course the president will continue to monitor from wisconsin, right? >> reporter: of course, he will, carol. we're hearing from white house officials that before he leaves this morning,

at the unemployment rate, over the last 45 months since president obama took office, the unemployment rate has come down. last month it was the lowest level since he took office. in fact, it was below where he took office, but the amount of job creation on a month-to-month basis has been slowing down. it's actually been a little bit smaller. so when you think about job creation and creating new jobs and driving the economy forward, that's an area where some economists will say it's not as strong. one area where we have seen jobs come back, and this was last month, is government work. one area where we've actually seen things drop off a bit is manufacturing, which has been one of the strongest sectors in our economy. >> thank you. norah? >>> for four days during superstorm sandy, president obama and mitt romney took it easy on each other, but on thursday they were back on the attack. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i'm elected president on day one we'll bring real change to america. >> he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsi

.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> now, as you might expect, the president is zeroing in on the job numbers. here he is, take a listen. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned the companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> all right, with that said, i want to bring in now our chief business correspondent, mr. ali velshi, he's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up substantially, or more importantly if the 171,000 jobs weren't created. the expectation was for 125,000 jobs. as long as he cleared
